The Director of Finance certifies that funding is available as appropriated in the current capital budget of the General Capital Projects Fund and the Storm Water Capital Project Bonds Fund and that upon approval of the above recommendations and adoption of the attached appropriation ordinance funds will be available in the current capital budget, as appropriated in the Water and Sewer Capital Fund. The Fiscal Year 2018 Water Operating Budget includes appropriations of $29,069,236.00 for the purpose of providing Pay-As-You-Go funding for Water Capital Projects. Due to insufficient funds remaining in the Sewer Pay-As-You-Go allocation for 2018, Water funding is being used to fund the Sewer Construction Cost required for this M&C.  After this transfer for Fiscal Year 2018, the balance will be $771,681.00.
